About the Logo
The inspiration for the logo came from a sculpture created by internationally recognized sculptor, Aniko Veres-Fe (10/16/1927-12/02/2011). As a teenager in Hungary, Aniko was deported to Auschwitz in 1944. She was then transported to work as a slave laborer in a bomb factory in the small town of Stadtallendorf, Germany. At the end of the war, Aniko returned to Budapest, Hungary where she stayed until the revolution broke out in November 1956. With her 2 children, she fled to Paris and eventually moved to the United States.
In 1990, Stadtallendorf, through the Red Cross, opened all of their homes to welcome and ask forgiveness of the women who had worked there as slave labor. The town commissioned Aniko to create a sculpture for their newly built museum to honor all of those women.
This amazing woman was my mother.
